Re: how to install new repositories solved

I did as you said and replace olivia with raring. While doing so I noticed something to enable backport repos, which I did. I still get the error message, but was able to install gpointing-device-settings, which is what I was having trouble with. Here is the output: Repos: Active apt sources in file...

Re: how to install new repositories

I checked the box for back port repos and it seems to have solved most of my problems. Thanks for the help.

How do I replace the repositories in linux mint 15? Every time I refresh the repositories or try to update my system, many of the repositories are not found. I get 404 error messages.

Re: Why did my update manager and software center stop worki

I tried that and was unable to merge/fix. I got the same error message, and the update manager icon continues to have a red X in it.

Re: Installing over Ubuntu

First, be sure to back up any files that you wish to protect. Then in the installation dialog is the option to replace Ubuntu and keep your files. I did this and haven't lost any of my settings or files. I hope this helps.
Good luck,
